Rainbow Song, Genesis 9.8-17 — John Campbell, UK

Genesis 9:8-17      

tune: You shall go out with joy’

A rainbow in the sky, its colours arching high,

is a promise sent from God to all of creation

that sustaining care, which will always be there,

is a gift that never ends.

So harsh winters will always end in springs

and each seedtime prepare what harvest brings

and this promise is what each rainbow sings –

God’s care will never end.

 

A rainbow in the sky, its colours arching high,

is a challenge from our God to care for creation

for our failure’s clear and disaster’s so near –

can we stop and show we care?

Can we start to repair the hurt we do

treat the world with respect, so we’ll pull thro’ –

do what God and the rainbow want us to….

can we show that we care?
